A wholly owned subsidiary of Guest Services, Lancaster Foods, LLC is one of the largest wholesale produce processing and distribution companies in the mid-Atlantic region. Lancaster specializes in the best organic, ethnic and value-added products -- all contained in earth friendly packaging.
At Lancaster, principal leadership and an experienced team of buyers are on the job seven days a week, 363 days per year. The Lancaster team continuously monitors local, regional, national and global markets to bring our customers the highest quality produce from the most respected growers and shippers in the industry.
Leadership, seasoned buyers, receiving and shipping teams, and a dedicated Quality Assurance Team fanatically inspect all produce, employing a systematic, layered inspection program. Nothing escapes intense scrutiny; from the moment the produce is ordered and arrives at our state-of-the-art facility, to the timely delivery to your store or kitchen. Uncompromising commitment to customer service at the highest level of integrity has made Lancaster Foods one of the largest and most trusted wholesale produce companies in the country.
Our preference is to source products from small to mid-size growers and buy local whenever seasonally available. Our definition of "local" follows the USDA Rural Development criteria as outlined in the 2008 Farm Act: that a product travel less than 400 miles from the point of origin, or be produced in the same state. We offer USDA Certified Organic produce.
